This month's feature is French, Fabulous and adorably Funny. Fabrissou is just as humble as he is talented. Fabrissou's style skillfully depicts a marriage between Manga-esque styles with a cartooning style I've always credited to be French. Fab doesn't have a website yet, but the French fanzine, Dokkun, has featured his work in every issue so far. I'm lucky enough to have some of his work to show you along with some of the goods on Fab...

FABRISSOU: The Artist
Who were/are some of the biggest influences on your artistic style?
"My main influence is Logan. When 10 years ago, I bought a comic book by him, I started drawing hot guys. I think I'm influenced by Japanese cartoons and comics I enjoy a lot. I really like Disney style too, and more recently, I fell in love with very stylized pictures of J. Bone (and the whole Bruce Timm / Cartoon Network style)."
It appears you are pretty good buds with Logan and Silencio. Are there any 3sums, um er...collaborative works in the future? :)
"Ahahahahaha! I keep on asking for the threesome, it will hopefully coming very soon ^^
It is a real living dream to draw with Silencio and Logan. There are no collaborative work planned for now, but it is sure something I'd like to do! I actually have some projects including the 3 of us I want to ask them. The truth is, even if they now are close friends, they stay incredible artist in front of whom I feel very ashamed."
What is your favorite part about drawing?
"At the very end of my drawing, adding red blushes on noses and cheeks, and then white spots !^^"
What part of drawing comes easiest to you?
"Nothing is easy, unfortunately T___T"
How do you get over blocks in creativity?
"I have to put myself in a virtuous circle. If someone gives me some compliments, I can draw a long time. So I force me to draw to have compliments. It's bad, I know..."
What projects are you currently working on?
"The French fanzine Dokkun where I draw a comic on each issue.
I just made a doujinshi for the Japanese YarouFes, it was very fun! I hope to come back next year with another douhinshi."
For those of us who don't speak/read French, can you tell us about Dokkun?
"Dokkun is a French fanzine full of gay porn comics. The Dokkun name is the Japanese sound for ejaculation. There are 3 issues, and the 4th is planned for late June. A lot of very talented artist made comics in the Dokkun books - YD, Veebee, Gigan, Lex, Silencio, and Logan, and me.
I'm talking right now with some really good artists who asked me to participare. Dokkun will soon become worldwide with comics from American and Japanese artists!
It was not necessarily done on purpose, but Dokkun is actually very manga style inspired and the comics are all about very manly bearish guys."
Will Dokkun be made available in English?
"It is planned from the very start. But my English is that bad. But it is something I definitely like to do, and a lot of people are asking me this."
Top or Bottom?
Sexiest part on a man:
"Eyebrows. I'm an eyebrow fetishist. Zachary Quinto - I love you!"
Have you done porn?
"I got filmed - who doesn't? But I did not do real porn"
What would your porn name be?
Most over rated thing about sex:
"Long Sessions. I like it fast."
What is your festish?
"I really like discipline role play but I'm too ashamed to insult my boyfriend."
Most embarrassing sexual experience:
"It was a long time ago, a very (VERY) handsome guy asked me to have sex with him.
Before meeting him, I played a video game called Brave Fencer Musashiden at my favorite point where you have to beat TOPO with dancing skills. TOPO's fight is all about a very funny music.
When I finally meet the guy, the foreplay was awesome, but I started to sing the video game song in my head. I couldn't think about anything else and then I lost my erection and couldn't get hard anymore. I perhaps didn't have the sex of my life because of TOPO song.
HAHAHAHAHAHA! Fabrissou, everybody!
Thank you, Fabrissou, for such an open and honest interview. I am a big fan of your work and now even a bigger fan of YOU. You and I should start a Facebook fan page for lovers of big eyebrows, hahaha!
Fabrissou doesn't have a website up yet, but as mentioned he's a regular artist for Dokkun magazine and is also on Facebook. Send him some love and keep him motivated by letting him know how much you enjoy his work.
Until next time, Stay FABulous
